Concrete slab reinforcement tool

Win64, English

Create reinforcement for irregularly shaped slabs, including area reinforcement layout, cross-section sketching, dimensioning, annotating, and quantity takeoff... Imperial & Metric systems supported.

General Usage Instructions

The procedures to draw a reinforced slab: 


A. Establish settings

1. Select default language + measurement system

2. Model unit  & paper unit

3. Naming convention

4. Rebar standard, rebar grade

These are the most important settings that need preparation before drawing.  To save time, users may load preset settings files included in the installation folder.

Good settings can be saved and reused later.


B. Draw rebars

1. Select a concrete boundary, and rotate the boundary polyline so that the main rebar directions are parallel to X, Y directions of Autodesk® AutoCAD® model space

2. Select  rebar mesh position (top/bottom)

3. For each mesh, enter the following data for a rebar group: Direction, mark (name), ordinal number, diameter, spacing, spacing option, concrete cover

Add the data to the Rebar Group table, each rebar group corresponds to a row in the Rebar Group table.  The Rebar group table can be saved and reused for other slabs.

4. Draw main rebar groups

5. Add spacers/links

6. Draw cross-sections

7. Add Dimensions

8. Add annotations

9. Draw rebar detailing

10. Quantity takeoff

11. Plot



  • Structure analysis/ calculation should be done by another process;
  • Steps A, B1 to B4 should be carried out by experienced engineers.  However, these steps' results can be saved and reused;
  • Time-consuming steps B5 to B11 do not require skilled labor.
